a Lifestyle & Interior Photographer working in Long Island & New York City.
"In the order and disorder of everyday life there are beautiful stories to be cherished and remembered and I love capturing the beauty of those real-life moments and milestones for you to cherish for years to come."
I was born in Queens NY, and have spent most of my life in front of the camera as a Dancer/Singer/Actress. I'm married with two beautiful daughters. I love old movies, especially musicals, interior decorating and anytime my whole family gets together!
My interest in photography started when I began documenting my life and the special moments of my friends and people I met while performing on tour. I found capturing the essence of family and friends in the order and disorder of their everyday life so beautiful.
When my children were born they became my main source of inspiration for photography. Eight years ago I was approached by a hospital employee who saw some of my family photos and asked if I would like to photograph newborns and their families in the local hospital. It was such an honor for me to capture and preserve those intimate moments for new families.
Now I'm a full-time professional Lifestyle Photographer. As a visual artist , I love using my artistic training and experience to capture all the beautiful, authentic moments that reflect my clients' unique relationships with their family, their friends and their space.
